The 780 is a great card. I got mine back in may and have been happy with it compared to the sli gtx 580s I had. It's much quieter and cooler than the sli setup and over clocks easily.


Nvidia has made life a lot easier with this series. GeForce experience optimizes my games, and the oc scanner overlooks my card well past the titans. All with just the push of a button.

That graphics card serves you well when gaming at 1440p?

Fact: MBA has inferior hardware specs than almost everything in this thread.

Opinion: MBA is the best computer on the market.

I don't believe he straddled the line.

Yeah, I'm really on the fence between a 7950 and a 780. It's like I could go mid-range and over-clock, or just sit at the top. It just sucks that Crysis 3 is the only game that's a decent barometer for next-gen PC gaming.

SLI and Crossfire are beasts when it comes to anything over 1080p. That's where they really shine, and savings really come into play imo.

However, I live where it's hot and humid for around 7 months of the year, I'd have to pony up for a case with a lot of fans and vents and a beefy PSU. I'm gonna ride out my 22 inch monitor for as long as I can. Single cards will serve me well in this case.

aaahh yeah...here in NY, it's not so bad as far as heat goes (except in the summer) and I mainly SLI'd to consistently stay over 60 fps. My TVs my bottleneck so unless I start downsampling (which I probably should), I won't be gaming over 1080p. I'd go back to monitors but having been gaming on a 40"+ TV for so long I can't see myself going back to something smaller for entertainment.

I definitely feel you, though. Especially if you don't mind 40-60 fps in Crysis, I think single card will do you just fine. Outside of Witcher 3, BF4, and MAYBE Metro: Last Light, I haven't seen anything push a system graphically the way Crysis 3 has so if it's that going to continue to be the measuring stick, 1 card should be straight for you

60fps is the target, especially since I'm dropping all of this cash no doubt. I think I may turn off or use a lower form of AA on high settings versus ultra for most games (if I go mid-range). I'm willing to go for a 780 in price, but then I really have to question what I'm doing.

I spend most of my time gaming with friends on consoles. That's number one for me. Single player games or MMO's would just be exclusive to my rig. That's where I'm not sure my return on the investment may match up. I'm just scouring the net for opinions on how demanding next gen games will be for PC's and then I'll go from there.

Too expensive in contrast to the 780 and even the Titan.

Hovi finally making the move to Master Race. Resistance was futile. Sit back and enjoy the 60fps gaming.

The 780 would be a very good card. That should last you a pretty long time. It has 3GB of RAM which is more than enough for 1080p gaming. If you plan on gaming higher than 1080p, you might want to look into the 4GB cards as well.

It all depends on how long you want to keep the card. If you want to keep it for no more than two years, you might want to go a bit lower in your budget and get the 7950. If you want to keep your card for longer, get the 780.

I am on the fence now about getting another GTX 670. I am most likely going to wait till next year to see what performance the newer gen cards offer. Will probably get the next gen video card then.

If that's #1 for you then why would you even drop over a stack for a gaming rig that you won't even use that much?

I don't half a.ss anything. No offense.

I want the best console, I want the best rig, I want the best laptop.

For my own needs of course.

Aren't we already on Maxwell? With Volta arriving next year?

Even then, I feel like the higher I go on the GPU, the longer the cycle will be.

Mid range is 2-3 years, high end is probably double to say the least. I remember Arson posting a GeForce GTX 8800 running Tomb Raider at 1080p.

You'll just SLI the 670's and ride out another year or two?



I think I may just go with a 760-770 for half a year and hope it still has some resale value towards any of the newer cards next year. I'm kinda ruling out the AMD cards even though the price/performance ratio is through the roof. Driver support is supposedly terrible.

He's good for those MMO's. I'm just trying to play, you know, everything if I wanted to.
